Getting to Know Red Rocks

For the first hour of today’s show we heard interviews with Kory Miller of Red Rocks Worship, one of the artists that will be at SonFest this year. Kory shared how excited the band is playing at SonFest this Saturday. He also shared with us how God has worked within the band and the exciting news that the band is recording a new album!

Emma shared day two of the devotional called While We Wait. Sharing the encouraging message that God is working in your waiting season. This devotional talks about the story of David, that he had to wait 20 years before he became King of Israel. We all have a purpose and a calling, which means we have to embrace the waiting.

Jonathon shared a devotional from Our Daily Bread titled God in the Details, making a connection between a family craving carrots and a God that is in every aspect of our lives. This devo also shares the story of Moses and his calling to free the Israelites from the hands of Egypt.

Give silence a chance!

Today is a day to celebrate quiet!

We know that peace and quiet are good for the both the body and the mind, but it’s increasingly difficult in today’s world to experience real quiet, and that’s why a National Quiet Day is so important.

Everything that’s created comes out of silence. Remember, Genesis reminds us that first there was nothing, then there was everything!

Every day we are surrounded by the chatter of TV, the radio, even our friends and family. Few are the opportunities we have to engage in a little quiet contemplation, giving our vocal chords a rest to simply listen to the world around us and simply experience it. 

https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/quiet-day/

National Quiet Day was established to remind us to slow down and give silence a chance. Solitude was also a habit that Jesus modeled. He needed peace and quiet as he contemplated His ministry and spoke with our heavenly father.
